The wine has a lovely golden colour reflecting the ripeness of the grapes used in its production. The nose is filled with complex aromas of dried fruits, muscat grapes and christmas pudding. The high sugar level of the wine gives it a viscous and decadent mouth feel. The wine fills the palate with an explosion of dried apricot, peach and nutty flavours. A wonderful way to finish the evening or splendid with soft cheese and nuts. Made in tiny quantities, this wine is a rare and largely undiscovered jewel of the South African wine industry.
